Morales, a power-hitting first baseman, did not play in the big leagues last season after breaking his left in May 2010.

When you play in a league where you’re required to draft at least one player that sounds like a dish from a delicatessen, who do you want? Kipnis or the Russian émigré, Kasha Varnishkes?
